Dr.McCroskey is one of the best oncologist that I have had the good fortune of meeting. My sister Shannon is his patient and he takes the time to answer all of her questions and our questions. I am my sister's caregiver and Dr.McCroskey calls my cell phone to check on her and to see if she needs anything. Dr.McCroskey even comes by to check on her while she's receiving chemotherapy. Dr.McCroskey is very hands on and very intelligent. My family and I thank God for him, because my sister deserves the best medical treatment and medical care, and Dr.McCroskey is the BEST!

If you would like your oncologist to yawn throughout your 1st appointment and then be very late for your 2nd appointment and not talk about a treatment plan, then Dr. McCroskey may be just the oncologist you are looking for. We're looking for a different oncologist.

Dr. McCroskey treated my Mom before she passed. He's fantastic, caring and very knowledgeable. I'm recommending him right after I write this to a friends Mother who was just diagnosed with lung cancer.
